In her previous research she focused on gendered conflicts, on sexual violence in conflicts and conflict reconciliation practices. Her current research focuses on religious extremism, with a special focus on home-grown Islamism and possible prevention strategies. For her final thesis, she would like to explore how interreligious dialogue for action not only serves as an effective peace building tool, but to what extent it can become a prevention strategy against religious extremism.

Misel Gara                                Medieval Studies
1YMA

Home Country: Hungary

E-mail: Gara_Misel@student.ceu.edu

Thesis: Social aspects of the Early Christian love-feast

Bio: Misel received his MA degree in History of Classical Mediterranean Antiquity from Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest. His interest in late antiquity, and especially in the spread of Early Christianity in pre-Constantinian times, was developed from a social historical approach. In his first thesis he was comparing the social aspects of the Pagan sacrificial meal and the Christian love-feast, while lately, within the confines of CEU, the study of the concept of the communion led him to Eucharistic theology and political theology.

Burak Yazici 

Department of History
2YMA/year 2

Home Country: Turkey

burryazici@gmail.com
Yazici_Burak@student.ceu.edu.tr

Area of study: I graduated from Hacettepe University with a BA in History. My primary area of interest is the relationship between colonialism and religion. Colonialism has usually been considered as a policy devised to serve the material interests of the monarchies, and commercial ambitions of the merchants. However, in this research project, I aim to analyze the role of religion and missionaries in colonization policies by comparing the colonization of Eastern North America by France and the Balkans by the Ottoman Empire. I aim to study the similar/different roles that the missionaries and dervishes played in colonization processes.

Thesis: The Role of Missionaries in the Colonization of New France and Ottoman Dervishes in the Colonization of the Balkans: A Comparative Study on the Early Modern Age Missionaries
